How’s this grab you?
The USA is not a state of all its citizens. According to the Nation-State Law which ought to be passed, the USA will be the nation-state of the Catholic People – and them alone. As is clear, there will be no problem with the non-Catholic citizens of the USA — they will have the same rights as us all and the coming government will invest in the non-Catholic sector more than its previous government.
Fine idea. I don’t see anything wrong with it. Fits kind of nice. When spoken aloud, it sort of fills the mouth with round tones. Declaring the once United States Catholic would restore the unity we now lack. For one, it would empower government to deal with all these Church officials running around defining themselves by their sexual desires.
I’m basing my exercise on words Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu posted on his Instagram account. Seems an Arab—a celebrity, which is how we know about it—living in Israel isn’t pleased about the situation regarding Arab parties in government. This celebrity said (the news report was paraphrasing, we gather) “Israel is a country for all its citizens.”
On Sunday morning, Netanyahu responded to Sela on his own Instagram. He uploaded a picture of himself against the backdrop of an Israeli flag, and wrote, “Dear Rotem, an important correction: Israel is not a state of all its citizens. According to the Nation-State Law that we passed, Israel is the nation-state of the Jewish People – and them alone. As you wrote, there’s no problem with the Arab citizens of Israel — they have the same rights as us all and the Likud government has invested in the Arab sector more than any other government.”
As I’ve said before, I’m no judge about that land on which the current state of Israel sits. I believe it ought to be Christian, given Our Lord sacrificed himself there. The Holy Land is, well, the Holy Land. Lot of evangelization needed in that crook of the desert.
Yet like my dad always says, if IFs and BUTs where candy and nuts, every day’d be Christmas. The Crusades failed. Israel isn’t going anywhere, so let’s deal with her as she is. We can’t make Israel Christian. At least, not until the Parousia.
We might be able to turn the USA into the Catholic USA, though. Maybe not the entire land mass. Perhaps just a good chunk of it. We can acknowledge real politics and give the entire Left coast to the atheists. They already have it. Everything from upstate New York on over to Michigan, and then down through Arizona, or so, and continuing through Florida will be The Catholic States of America. CSA! CSA! CSA!
There will be some serious gerrymandering needed to sort all this out. All change comes with a cost. We shouldn’t shy away from hard work.
Don’t misunderstand me and think I am against what Israel is doing. It must be clear that Jews are a minority in the region and that if Israel was not officially Jewish, in the inexorable application of Conquest’s second law, it would soon become something resembling, say, South Africa. Having a legal position of living apart is smart.
The Nation-State Law states (among other things) “Israel is the historic homeland of the Jewish people, who have the unique right of national self-determination” and “Israel will be open to Jewish aliyah”—open immigration of non-Israeli Jews. The law also speaks of a “Diaspora”, which is rather dangerous language, implying that a Jew’s natural home is not the country in which they might reside. But let that pass.
None of these declarations sound any worse by swapping in “Catholic” for “Jewish.”
Now some will complain and say Jews aren’t a religion, but a race, so that my analogy doesn’t work. There is no problem. We declare instead “According to the Nation-State Law to be passed, USA is the nation-state of the White People – and them alone.” The cuts we’d make to divide the land would be different, but we can leave that to the cartographers.
On the other hand, if Jews aren’t a religion or a race but both simultaneously, which is no contradiction, then “According to the Nation-State Law to be passed, USA is the nation-state of the Catholic White People – and them alone.”
Doesn’t have to be just the USA. Any country can, and maybe even should, get in on this.
